Lonely Canopy Art & Travel

Traveling the world, one sketch at a time!

Panchhi Banu Udati Phirun …

पंछी बनूँ उड़ती फिरूँ मस्त गगन में
आज मैं आज़ाद हूँ दुनिया की चमन में

Panchhi Banu Udati Phirun Mast Gagan Men
Aaj Main Aazaad Hun Duniya Ke Chaman Men

English translation: 

As a bird, I want to fly in the beautiful sky.

Today, I have been liberated in the garden of the world.

 When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. – Rumi

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda. “This is the last edition of WOW in 2018 and we want you to ‘Imagine you are someone’s shadow for a day‘ and tell us who that person will be and describe how will it be like his/her shadow for a day.”

My artwork interprets this prompt as the song that came to mind when I read the brief. And, the first image in my mind was the shaws I made by candlelight when there would be ‘power cut’ during my childhood.

Nice artwork. Are you implying since you are a free bird you do not want / need to shadow anyone?
